Disney+’s Percy Jackson show has found a few more gods. Warrior Nun returns for season 2 in a new trailer. Plus, another look at the new Little Mermaid, and what’s coming on Stargirl, Reginald the Vampire, and more. Spoilers, away!
Halle Bailey shared a new poster for the live-action Little Mermaid on Twitter.
The Asylum invents its own hybrid of The Crow and Ghost Rider in the trailer for the genuinely kind of fun-looking Headless Horseman.
Variety has word Adam Copeland, Suzanne Cryer, and Jessica Parker Kennedy have joined the cast of the upcoming Percy Jackson series at Disney+. Copeland will play Ares, the God of War, while Cryer is said to be Echidna, The Mother of Monsters. Kennedy has been cast as everyone’s favorite gorgon, Medusa.
Deadline reports Michael Beach, Joshua Colley, and Lindsey Gort have joined the cast of the Dead Boy Detectives series at HBO. Beach will play Tragic Mick, “a melancholy walrus trapped in a human body who helps the Dead Boys out sometimes,” while Colley has been cast as Monty, “an affable, astrology-loving teen who can see ghosts…and falls pretty hard for Edwin Payne.” Gort will round out the cast as Maxine, “a quirky librarian in Port Townsend with a big, messy secret.”
According to TV Line, Gil McKinney will reprise his role as Sam and Dean’s grandfather, Henry Winchester, on the upcoming Supernatural spinoff. Relatedly, showrunner Robbie Thompson promised The Winchesters will include monsters not seen during the previous 15 seasons of Supernatural.
We were really looking for something to differentiate from Supernatural, something we hadn’t seen before. Obviously, there’s some demons in the pilot, and we’ve dealt a lot with demons on Supernatural. But we really were excited about trying to find a new monster, a new Big Bad, and even within the course of episodes, trying to find some new monsters for our heroes to be fighting.
